In a little over a year, Copenhagen’s Vanløse district will be the site of yet another mega-structure when the retail and residential complex, Kronen Vanløse, opens its doors in autumn of 2017.

The centre, which gets its name from an old margarine factory Kronen that used to stand on the site, will cover 59,000 square metres and feature a collection of 75 grocery, home and fashion stores, as well as a selection of restaurants, cafes and recreational areas. The complex will also house apartments on the second, third and forth floors, according to AOK.

Residential and commercial
The project, a joint venture by Tristan Capital Partners and Solstra Capital Partners, is being conceptualized as a modern city centre that can function effectively as both a residential and retail property when it opens.

We created Kronen Vanløse to be a new, modern city centre in the heart of Vanløse, which will, in the future, act as either a home or workplace for many people,” said Oscar Crohn, managing partner at Solstra.

“Perhaps most importantly, we hope that with the central location and the wide range of shops and restaurants,  Kronen Vanløse will become a natural gathering point for residents of Vanløse in their daily lives.”

Well-known names like Føtex, H&M, and Sinnurup have reportedly already rented 65 percent of the retail space in the new centre.
